Did you know that grocery store baby carrots are actually cut from regular sized carrots? Once you try the sweet flavor and crisp bite of this 3" long, true baby carrot, you will never look back! Though it tastes great fresh from the garden, 'Little Finger' was developed in France for pickling and canning whole.
$2.49 750 mg (~380 seeds)

Botanical Name: Daucus carota

Days to Maturity: 57 days

Family: Apiaceae

Native: Africa, Eurasia

Hardiness: Frost-tolerant biennial grown as an annual

Plant Dimensions: Roots are 3" long at their peak

Variety Information: Smooth, cylindrical, uniform, with deep orange color even before maturity. Will grow to 7" if allowed. 'Little Finger' is a Nantes type carrot.

When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 45°F, ideally 60°–85°F. Successive Sowings: Every 3 weeks until 10 to 12 weeks before your average first fall frost date. In very warm climates, carrots are grown primarily in fall, winter, and spring.

When to Start Inside: Not recommended; root disturbance stunts growth.

Days to Emerge: 10–25 days

Seed Depth: ¼"

Seed Spacing: 1"

Row Spacing: 6"

Thinning: When 1" tall, thin to 1 every 2"

Harvesting: For best flavor and texture, harvest carrots any time before, and until they reach their optimal size. Peak harvest period lasts about 3 weeks, longer in the fall. Late summer-sown carrots are sweetened after having been kissed by light frost; however, harvest before soil freezes, which may destroy the crop. In USDA zone 5 or warmer, carrots can be left in the ground for storage provided they are heavily mulched; harvest as needed on days the ground is not frozen.
